    Bright tubular flowers the colour of burnt amber and flushed red in bud smother this honeysuckle from May to July. This gorgeous deciduous climber looks lovely as the backdrop for a planting scheme based on 'hot' colours. One of the most unusual honeysuckles it flowers best on a south-west wall in full sun to light shade with its roots in deep shade.
  • Garden care: Cut back established plants after flowering removing a third of the flowering shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring.
